Ben Kiniry of Texas gets cash from an ATM along Rome's Via della Conciliazione, the main street leading to the Vatican, on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013. It's "cash only" now for tourists at the Vatican wanting to pay for museum tickets, souvenirs and other services after Italy's central bank decided to block electronic payments, including credit cards, in the tiny city-state. The dome of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican is in the background. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
